Guess its diameter at 0.25mm, measure the distance to the film plane and calculate but do not forget the Schwarzschild effect.

There is supposed to be a chart that comes with the camera showing how to translate a f22 exposure reading to a correct exposure for the pinhole size. The chart would seem to indicate a stop size of around f190. Don’t forget that reciprocity has to be added to the transposed reading. I have a 6x6 Zero 2000 that has an aperture of f138, the advice given by them is to meter at f8 then reduce the reading by 8 stops finally adding reciprocity to that number.

That website link says:
  1. Focal length:25mm
  2. Pinhole diameter:0,15mm ( As of June 2020 ) 0,2mm prior
  3. f stop equivalent:167

I believe all of the earlier Ondu 6x6 Pockets were f/125, the MarkIII version went to the f/167. Maybe email Elvis and ask him? He's always responded to me. hello@ondupinhole.com. Great camera! Also, if you use an iPhone download the Pinhole Assist app, makes all this 1000 times easier, unless you love to manually calculate reciprocity :smile:
